HOW THE THEMES WOULD TRANSLATE to more current times, Alfonso Cuarón assumes into his adaptation of Charles Dickens' 1861 novel of the same name.
From an opulent, unkempt mansion that once belonged to a Ringling brother, to an elegant late 90's New York that existed in rainy nights, perfect days, art galleries and ritzy restaurants, the film makes even the most mood-less and moodiest faces look quite poetic.
And even the plainest, laziest weekends, quite moody.
Great Expectations, 1998. Directed by Alfonso Cuarón.
